Hire the best book editors in Ireland



The point at which you begin your collaboration with a professional book editor is a moment many authors look forward to: you’ve done your best with your manuscript, and it’s now time to see what an unbiased third party makes of it.



Once you hire a book editor in Ireland or beyond, you get a brief relief, where the ball is now entirely in their court — but be ready to take their feedback on board. If you’ve hired an editor for an editorial assessment or developmental edit, you’ll have some big-picture feedback to mull over and incorporate, like clarifying a character’s arc, restructuring the series of events, or sharpening or rewriting the opening and ending. If you’re working with a copy editor or proofreader, there will be less open-ended discussions, but you’ll still be surprised by how strongly you might feel about a specific turn of phrase. The process can be tough, but it’s infinitely rewarding, and your book will emerge stronger and more compelling.
